I had the opportunity to attend Warren’s Power BI Training for local governments and it really enhanced my Power BI skills. It assisted me to uncover some of the cool features that I wasn’t aware before. Training was well organised and I would recommend it for future users.

I recently attended a Power BI Training session and it really hit the mark for me in both the pitch of the session and the level of technical insight. There was a lot to cover, but it was exciting to see the reports take shape throughout the day. The team were very intuitive in spotting those of us who were in need of help or sometimes just providing encouragement that we were on the right track!

I would highly recommend undertaking this course if you're new to Power BI or if you're looking to take your Power BI skill-set to a higher level. The course provided me with practical insights into Power BI and its benefits as a business intelligence tool, particularly in the Local Government workplace.

I found the training was targeted at the perfect level for beginners and early users of the software. It was great to get the terminology and foundations laid correctly to start with and then exploring commonly used functions and tricks, which I had previously found difficult on Google as a new user.

I attended one of DataTale's training sessions for Power BI early this year and it was incredibly eye opening how quickly the world of data analytics is moving.

DataTale does a fantastic job of demonstrating how useful and efficient Power BI can be, but doesn't hold back when showcasing some of the true power of the program. The training session has everything for everyone, from basic visualisations of datasets to connections into SQL databases, configuring gateways and loading mapping visuals through APIs.

It's well worth the full day of training and I certainly took back the training notes for help on some of the projects I'm currently working on.

I found the Power BI training extremely helpful, well thought out, in depth and informative. The training structure was very hands on, which I enjoyed very much. Warren provided us with a real life scenario and a instruction manual that outlined step by step how to construct a Power BI report based on that particular scenario structuring the training this way gave me a complete end to end understanding of the application and its features.
